Occasionally you will get a random double pic or video. Keep an eye on it and see how often it happens.

Assuming the camera has retry logic, it depends on the server sending a response back to the camera that says "hey I got the file ok - we are good". If the internet connection was lost after the file was delivered but before the response was received by the camera then by design it may retry. At least that is how it was designed when I was developing this part of the system.

If the camera does not get the response then it may try and send again. The occasional double pic is better than the often missing pic, you should agree.

If the double issue is rare and random then it is very likely to be internet disconnections due to any number of reasons and the retry I described above. However, if double sends occur from requesting a photo or video as an action and only then, then it could indicate a server code bug.

It did the double pictures for a 24 hr period and then stopped. This is the first video request that it doubled down on. I will keep an eye on it.

Just keep an eye on it Tim. I’m running 6 Cameras in pic+video now. I see the double video request delivery every now and then. Just like I’ll occassionally get double motion pics sent or double scheduled pics sent. Just not often enough to see any pattern or be concerned about it.

I'm not to concerned about it. If it starts happening a lot then I might start worrying about batteries and data.
